Your Donations Make Our Museum Possible!

As a museum privately owned by the Neanderthal Museum Foundation, we generate the funds to cover a substantial fraction of our operating costs ourselves. As such, our need for subsidisation is relatively small compared to the majority of museums. This provides considerable motivation for our staff and results in a level of customer service of which we are, in all modesty, very proud.

We feel it is of particular importance to maintain transparency for our donors by clearly stating how we plan to use their donations. Currently, we are planning to expand our collection of fossil replicas. These are put to frequent use in educating upper secondary school classes about human evolution.

Donations start from as little as € 5.00.
We appreciate your support.

Naturally, you can make your donation via a direct transfer to our account.

Supporting Education with Your Last Will and Testament

A bequest can provide long-term support for education, scientific research, and communication by an independent scientific institution. Individuals who would like to use a bequest to support research into the history of humankind and the Neanderthal Museum, can name the Neanderthal Museum as a beneficiary in their will. We would be happy to advise you on this matter and to help you formulate a bequest that expresses your wishes.
